Pleasant for pheasant, for now

Pheasant

The 'Glorious Twelfth' (of August) is a bad date for red grouse, as this is the day that the season for hunting them opens.
I didn't know this but: the season for hunting pheasant doesn't open until October.  So this pheasant here is having a peaceful summer.  Unlike the grouse.

  1. Very colourful. We don't have them here, aside from in zoos.
